UK BioBank Data Repository Available Now

We are pleased to announce that the UK BioBank Genotyping and Imputation Data Release (data for all 500,000 participants in UK BioBank) is now available for use on central compute platforms (the CSF, DPSF and iCSF). It is also available as a storage share that can be mapped as a network drive on campus PCs / desktops.

The datasets have been downloaded, decrypted and verified. Accessing the central repository provided by Research IT will eliminate the need for research groups to download approximately 12TB of data. For more information on requesting access and using the datasets please see the dedicated UK Biobank webpage. If you have any questions about accessing the datasets please contact us.
